  • 3 - 4 large sized onions vertically and thinly sliced
  • oil for deep frying


  • Firstly, add oil in a wok and heat it.
  • When the oil is heated up, add the sliced onions.
  • Stir for a while.
  • Fry the onions on sim flame.
  • Fry them until a pinkish color is observed.
  • Keep stirring in between so that all the onions are fried well and evenly attain the pinkish color.
  • When the onions are fried well and attain the golden brown color strain them out.
  • Place them on a tissue paper and spread them loosely.
  • Let the oil be absorbed by the tissue paper.
  • Place them uncovered for 5 - 10 minutes so that they become dry and get the crispy texture to the onions.
  • When the onions are crispy and crushy, they are ready to be used.
  • Store them in an air tight container.
  • They can be used for few days.


Do not fry the onions on high flame.
If done so the onions may turn darker and lose the flavor which is actually required in the recipe.
